Since 1965, we continue to advocate protecting the existing refuge from further development and seek funding and support for acquisition and restoration of lands within the 1990 congressionally approved refuge expansion boundary. See a blast from the past - see two fliers here and here explaining why we need a national wildlife refuge in San Francisco Bay. You can read more about our history, mission and core issue using the hyperlinks below. 

We work to protect wetlands of all forms and realize that we must also work to protect the headwaters streams that eventually flow into the bay.  We also keep a close eye on proposed changes to regulations that protect wetlands and endangered species. Furthermore, we work with a number of other non-profit organizations across the Bay Area, State of California and Federal Level. You can take a look at all those organizations by using the links below.
